Samsung Tablet Patent Shows Double Sided Input

I really like my iPad but I am always afraid when I am trying to use it and the gestures it supports standing up that I am going to drop it. This is really only a problem when it’s a gesture that needs two hands. A new patent app has surfaced from Samsung that looks cool, and might provide more natural two-handed gestures.

The patent app has some line art that shows a method of using touch on the front and back of a tablet for gestures. That means you could hold the device with two hands naturally and use fingers on the front and back to rotate or pinch for gestures.

It’s also pretty cool because if you could control all of a page you are looking at from the back you could keep streaks and smears off the front of your tablet. There is no word on when or if the input system will make it to a real product.
